New bouts announced for UFC Raleigh, including Brianna Van Buren vs. Hannah Cifers

On Monday, new bouts were confirmed via press release for the UFC’s debut in Raleigh.

Among them were a strawweight bout between former Invicta FC champion Brianna Van Buren (9-2) and Hannah Cifers (10-3) and a bout between top-15 ranked flyweights Jordan Espinosa (14-6, 1 NC) and Alex Perez (22-5).

Van Buren made a successful UFC debut in July, stepping in on short notice for an injured Cynthia Calvillo. She went on to defeat fellow former strawweight champion Livia Renata Souza by unanimous decision to record her sixth consecutive victory, which included winning a one-night, eight-woman tournament for Invicta in May.
